, the obama administration said that we love to have the flexibility to go in and slice the funding as we see fit, as it should be be managed, we don't have that flexibility because of the way the law is written. so there is talk providing that in military areas, but in areas like this it's hard to see unless there's a ground swell for a short-term solution to he restore the money. >> greta: and i thought the republicans offered the flexibility to the white house and white house declined it. >> they offered it on the defense side and it may happen. they said they want it as part of a broader package over the sequester, but we're getting to the point look, the sequester is the law, it's happened, the cuts are implemented. i think there's going to be more pressure to say, wait a second, back this up and find it in the civilian area and find something that shouldn't be cut and we cut it. >> greta: or find $137,000 whatever the number is, in waste in the department of education and they won't. thank you. >> thank you. >> greta: on capitol hill, a debate the homeland security department released 2
but also the there's been a disengagement on the part of the obama administration itself. >> woodruff: what do you mean? >> they view iraq as just another country. they don't have the same emotional or psychological or even foreign policy stake in it that the previous administration had. so i think the united states can't solve all the problems in iraq certainly but it's not playing as active role in mediating these internal issues. >> woodruff: what's the relationship rajiv between the people of iraq and their government. how is that working? >> depends on which people. for the majority shiite population they see the government has largely working in their interests. the others look at the government and say these people aren't here to help me and serve me. i think there is a desire among many iraqis for a big tent, more secular government. but that's not the shape of the political system that they have today. in my view this is a result of the legacy of the american occupation and our military intervention there. the decisions made almost ten years ago today deba'ath phiing the country, e
that this and the answer has to be no. the fact that he got that shows that the president obama administration has carried off this robust war by drones. 4,800 people have been killed by drone strikes under the obama administration. that is an astounding number. i think it is troublesome. the fact that rand paul had to go to such lengths to get that simple answer that is what resonated. i don't think it advanced the drone question that much but that is the beauty of politics in 2013. rand paul is pretty low key? he gave almost a lecture here. he is charismatic but he doesn't a -- >> i'm glad to see a politician stand for something, has core values. in something. stand up for something. on the other hand you have john mccain stuffing his face for president obama. if he had core values and core con visions he did not like what rand paul stood for, go to the filibuster and call him on it. what did he do? he waited until the next day, had a nice party with president obama, fed that fat face of his and then came back to the floor and made an issue about it. i understand that john mccain is a big supporter of t
is a pretty clear signal from the obama administration that we are not going to talk about this any more. i'm afraid that the problem will not go away, however. theou are just greeting next generation of enemies. -- breeding the next generation of enemies. >> potentially, yes. my hope is that we will see a groundswell of support for transparency of how the weapons are used. that is what is needed. this is also to protect the operators. this is also to protect the men and women in uniform who sit behind the consoles and fly these missions. we are talking about their welfare as well. make sure it's a very clear mission and goals are very clear, the rules of engagement are very clear and agreed to buy the international community. >> thank you, robert. good to talk to you. the sudanese army has started pulling out troops from the border with south sudan as part of a deal between the two countries signed in the ethiopian capital on tuesday. sudan and south sudan also agreed to resume the full of oil within two weeks. the two side nearly went to war last august over oil north korea's army says it

of the house foreign affairs committee delivered a blistering critique of the obama administration's conduct. >> for two bloody years, u.s. policy has been addressed. they initially saw him as a reformer. once the revolt started, they backed u.n. diplomacy. predictably, none of this is war. reporter: as if bashar al-assad is any closer to hang onto power, the ambassador said he is not a psychiatrist, but the receivers military situation is worsening. jon: the longer this goes on from the more damage goes on. >> they are seeing hezbollah soldiers and weapons systems coming from iran and using iraq as a transit point. the secretary of state was recently in saudi arabia by providing arms to the rebels directly while the u.s. has non-lethal it. ambassador defended the administration's approach. >> is secretary. >> is secretary john kerry noted ,-com,-com ma therefore we are working with our partners to strengthen the opposition on the ground. reporter: russia continues to look at the concerns. jon: thank you. speak to the growing concerns of the nation of cyprus. the government elected to come u
is oversteping the bounds of his constitutional authorities as commander in chief. the obama administration made an effort before it took out the troops to curtail that and create a different governing arrangement. >> ifill: let me bring you to the u.s. side. michael, you talked to the military a lot. if how does the u.s. military view the war and what happened in iraq? >> well, you're never going to have anyne vieweven within an institution like the military certainly i do think the military can look at what they did in iraq and they see early mistakes in the first years which exacerbated the conflict, the rush to failure, so to speak handing over to the iraqis before they were ready to shoulder the burden. i do think the surge of the military operation and military strategy was effective and essential. in fact, i can't imagine how president obama could have withdrawn the forces and left behind a reasonably stable iraq without i i tnk tilitry acquitted itself well where the -- there's been a shortfall on the political side and trying to craft a political set of arrangements in iraq that leads t

't seem like she's giving hints that the obama administration is going to act, but she wants to first make sure that other people will act with the united states if there's action. so explain, explain what she, what she's doing in france. >> guest: well, first, let me give you the context of that trip because it was one of the most insane trips that i have been on. everything was on the move. it felt like the world was ending. you had the earthquake in japan with the tsunami there and the nuclear crisis, you had a crisis with pakistan where the cia contractor raymond davis was detained, you had, um, the revolution that was just ending in egypt, hosni mubarak had just stepped down, tunisia had already happened, the revolution was ongoing, the uprising was ongoing in libya, syria was just erupting, and you had a couple of thousand saudi and emirati troops filing into, marching into bahrain to try to quell the unrest there. all of this happening at the same time while we're on this flight to paris, and the u.s. is coming under intense pressure to try to do, intense pressure to do something ab
administration, usually at the end but in this case at the beginning is the israeli palestinian conflict, president obama you mention in your book, his first call was -- as president was to abbas, the head of the palestinian authority. how did that get derailed? seems like it's no longer -- maybe it's going to become a front burner issue but for at least three years, the presidency went to the back burner. what happened there? >> guest: several things. it wasn't for lack of trying on the part of the administration. you can sum it up by saying, expectations were raised way too high by the president, by the administration. there was a belief that perhaps there was a window of opportunity that could be used to advance the talks. but there was a misreading in the united states about what had changed on the ground in and are in the palestinian territories, and where each of the players was, netanyahu, and abbas. and there is often the sense that if you're the american president, you can make anything move, and then you bump against reality, and it's not enough to be -- the president changed.
controversial situation. the obama administration releasing illegal aliens from prison who have been convicted of crimes in this country. >> did you release any resittist drunk drivers? >> yes. >> how many? >> i don't have the exact number, but we have released many individuals who had dui offenses. >> repeat offender dui. >> repeat offender dui. congress has not provided that dui is a ground of removal. in fact most misdemeanors is not a ground of removal. it's the agency by agency policy that factors that in. i can't order you removed for having committed a dui offense. >> no, you can't, director but you certainly can request a rescheduling so you can move money around. this notion that you don't want to rob peter to pay paul, you could have easily done that you could have found $600 to keep these level one violators from being released and don't act like you could not have. here now uma. number of drunk drivers who have killed americans. very troubling. what was this hearing. >> house judiciary committee hearing looking at the fallout from the release of those 2,000 plus detainees who were
the lines that the obama administration has, if republicans won't give it all on loopholes a anything. >> but they will. >> if they do, then i think we are in business, because, you know, then i think there is something to talk about. >> i don't mean to speak for the entire party but, barney, i mean, you know better than anybody how it goes. you get somebody in front of the camera. you're in front of the camera and you're a first turn or second turn democrat from massachusetts, barney are you giving on entitlements? you say no. you ask me is a first or second-term republican? no, we just gave them tax increases. we are not doing it again. but then you get the cameras off and people say, okay i'll give you this, you give me that. taking care of the long-term debt is so important. >> i'm closer to you now than when you were a first or second-term republican. >> you like him more. >> he didn't say that. >> personally i always liked him. i would be asked by a reporter in the midst of a negotiation will you do this or that? i'd have to ask the reporters, how many votes do you have in the s

of imperfect storm here during the obama administration. you have the republicans, many of whom support the idea of more presidential authority in the use of force, and you have a lot of democrats who don't want to criticize the president. you have a heads and -- you have a hesitancy to have the proper debate. the libya example is a very important one to look at. ,ost: congresswoman barbara lee a guest earlier today, pointing to the use of military force after 9/11 after the terrorist attack. "if that was a turning point, it gave too much broad authority to the executive branch." guest: there is some truth to that. we have an inherent right to self-defense as a nation, which allows us to take actions against international terrorist organizations. the way i have always put this, any place in any country that either cannot or will not deal with these elements -- that has been the justification coming out of that authorization for the broader use of force against individual targets. the concern i have is, first of all, we don't know. we don't know the actual justifications for that. number

sequestration gave the obama administration a political reason to release deportable aliens. surely otherle budgetary considerations could have come first such as cutting conferences or detailees or travel. releasing illegal immigrants ves them little incentive to report themselves. many will become fugitives. further more, the director has indicated that i.c.e. has had to reapprehend four out of the 10 of the illegal immigrant for more severe crimes. to make matters worse, many of these individuals released lack the money, family, support, and the ability to get a job. not just because they are present in violation of the law but because they have a criminal record. this is a ultimately, the nonsensical action demonstrates the inability and a lack of desire on behalf of the administration to enforce the law, even against illegal immigrants convicted of serious crimes. to make matters worse, they undermine the goodwill necessary to develop a common sense, step- by-step approach to improving our immigration laws. pleasureime, it is my to recognize the ranking member of the committee, the gen
